Editorial Summer 2010
Written by Bernie-Woman
Well Summer is upon us and so far the weather has been kind.
For those who spent the Spring busy on the plot then now is the time to start enjoying the fruits of your labours - literally! Behemoth's articles on what to do on the plot in August and September give advice on what we should be sowing now for even more bounty come Autumn and Winter, as well as giving us tips on general care to ensure plentiful cropping.
And if you need a few ideas on how to cope with a courgette or marrow glut, then take a look here. Our recipe database has many other ideas on what to cook from plot to plate.
Of course the garden would be nothing without the honeybee and if you fancy having a go at the craft of beekeeping then visit The Apiary section of the forum for fantastic tips and advice.
If making things is your thing then there are some great tutorials on making jellies, wine or fruit liqueurs, while Erik's article on dram-making has some really unusual recipes using foraged ingredients. For those who want to have a go at making something you have never made before then look no further. Our members can offer instruction and advice on everything from making lavender wands, dishcloths to a tandoor oven in your own back garden.
For more ideas or to just join in the fun, don't forget to visit our forum.
